On February 28th we will be demonstrating outside Morgan Stanley's Miami Beach office to pressure them to divest from Energy Transfer Partners, the company building the Bayou Bridge Pipeline and who owns the Dakota Access Pipeline.
This protest is being coordinated by the FANG Collective as part of the No Bayou Bridge international Week of Action. Stop by on your way to work and invite your friends and fam!
The Bayou Bridge Pipeline would transport the same fracked-oil from the Dakota Access to oil export terminals in Louisiana. The pipeline route would cross over 700 bodies of water, including the main drinking source for the United Houma Nation.
Energy Transfer Partners has a huge record of social and environmental abuses - including mass infiltration and surveillance of water protectors movements. They are literally in the global warming business. They deserve to have their social license revoked, yet Morgan Stanley is a direct financier and major shareholder in ETP.
The head of Morgan Stanley's Institute for Sustainable Investing has publicly said that finance “can be one of the most powerful forces for positive social change at our disposal – if we ask it to be.” So we are demanding that Morgan Stanley put their money where their mouth is.
The protest will be held outside of Morgan Stanley's office in the morning of February 28, from 8-10:30 am at the corner of 16th Street and Michigan Avenue, Miami Beach. Feel free to bring your own signs and chants that amplify the messages of those who have been living this fight for years. (see below)
